    If your "rear" side panel doesn't require some "encouragement", your not doing it right :D

    Yeah, agree, I have never cut my fingers (or anything) while sleeving, but then again it might be because I have Haemophilia that makes me a little more cautious .. :Paranoid:

    if anyone has the MDPC molex pin tool for sleeving, would they mind lending it to me while i do my sleeving?, and then i send it back of course, 27 euro for one is a bit pricey and i'd be happy to pay postage

    Well as some of you oldies may know ive always posted in here when ive done cable management so today i thought it was time id give some love to my computer by taking it out and getting all the dust out. God damn was there a lot! I got the air compressor happening and cleaned out the whole comp, Put a filter on the side fan (not shown in pic) and some more cable mangement where i could.

    Enjoy

    Easiest thing is just look at the length and flexibility of your cables and see if you can shove them somewhere out of sight. Cable Management holes in your case are also a huge help with that. Just basically route all your cables behind things.

    And cable ties, what you cant hide, bundle together neatly.

    As copie said cable ties are brilliant (the mess you see at the bottom of mine in my pic is now neatly bundled with cable ties). You can get 100 from PCCG for $2.
    Modular PSUs work wonders too. So basically for the ultimate cables you need; hiding spots, cable ties and a modular PSU.

    Without the hiding abilities and modular PSU you can end up like my PC when I first put it together (with different parts than now).
